One often asked question is “how is candy made?’, well, here is the answer! Candy is made in a process called crystallization. The candy mixture is boiled till the sugar melts, and then it is cooled, until it hardens. Candy making varies because there are so many different kinds of candies. Taffy is made by boiling a mass of sugar and some kind of butter or vegetable oil and pulling it and then folding over, constantly repeating this cycle until the taffy is airy and soft. How are gummies made? Well, its a combination of gelatin, corn syrup, flavorings and sugar. The liquid is then poured into molds until they have “hardened”.
Well that is all the candies I have covered today, but I hope you have taken away a little knowledge away from this post about candy!
